Hello everyone!! Kymona here to show you how to create a fun layout title.
Welcome everyone. In today’s blog post I’m going to share a layout that I created using the Faux Veneer stamp. I was immediately draw towards the triangle shapes want to use those to add color and “texture” to the page. The Faux Veneer Stamp set is a perfect set for scrapbooking, card making and can even be used if you are a planner addict.
I planned out where I wanted to put the photo before stamping. I stamped to the right hand side working my way up towards the top right. Then I matted the white paper with my stamped triangles onto some fushia cardstock to make it pop of the page and placed that onto a white background.
For texture, I used some doilies from my kitchen and added some buttons and twine. To create flow I opted for some Altenew Shimmer Spray ink in Frosty Pink.
You can see how the whole layout came together in this video (watch it in HD on YouTube here.)
Last week I focused on the Circled sentiments stamp set and used it in three ways. For my card I created an embossed background and then used inks to add color. For today layout I decided to do the same but on a larger scale. I picked the pretty Floral Shadow Stamp Set.
I chose one stamp from the set and stamped it using a glue ink over the whole piece of cardstock. Then I added some Crystal clear embossing powder but you could use any color depending on the result you want to obtain. To get the colored effect, choose two ink colors and start with the lightest. Pop some ink onto a craft sheet and spray some water on it. Then just take the paper and dab into the ink embossed side facing down. Once the first color has been added, you can use the second. I picked Bamboo, Parrot and Caribbean Sky. I would advise to choose colors that work well together as you might get strange combination with some tones.
For the embellishments I used two die sets:
The title is also from a die called : Script Words 2 Die set.

Hello and welcome to the final day of our stamp focus for this month. I got to play with one of my favorite sets from the August release: Circled Sentiments Stamp Set. They are super versatile and really easy to use on either a scrapbook layout or a card.
For today’s post I created 3 projects with the set and each project showcases the stamp in a different way. I created a short video showing the three techniques which can be viewed at the end of this post.
- Stamp to create a background.
- Stamp and emboss.
- Stamp and create a title.
On my first project I used different circled sentiments and created a stamped background. I alternated two blue colors: Artic and Carribean Sky crisp inks and used my 12*12 stamping tool for precision. You could also stamp randomly for a more free and whimsical look.
The next technique is embossing which is really easy. I used a glue ink and stamped one of the circled sentiments onto some smooth white cardstock. I then added Altenew white embossing powder and set it using a heatgun. To create the pink-yellow background I added some Pinkalicious and Maple yellow Crisp ink and some water to a craft sheet and then dabbed the paper in the ink. I used this background to create a card.
The last technique is using the set to create a title. I chose to use the sentiment: YOU MAKE ME and added a die cut from the Script Words 2 die set. There are so many sentiments on this set which means your possibilities are endless.
You can see the different techniques I used the following video in HD on YouTube or just watch it below:
Hello, everyone and welcome to our August Guest Designer post!
Well do we have a treat for you today, we have the lovely Reiko Tsuchida for our August Guest Designer and she will sharing some amazingly beautiful projects. So here are what she has for us today:
Hi, Everyone! My name is Reiko Tsuchida from Japan and I’m so thrilled I can be a Altenew Guest Designer today. I felt in love with Altenew products when I saw the beautiful coordinated colors of gradations, water color feeling scrapbooking papers and floral stamps. I have been scrapbooking for almost seventeen years now. My biggest inspiration for scrapbooking is my daughters. I want to tell them how much I love and let them know there are people who love them unconditionally through making their scrapbooking albums. Time to time, those albums have been encouraging my daughters and brighten their lives. In 2015, I have started making a scrapbooking tutorial website with ideas and videos for Japanese people to share this wonderful lifework which helps and nourishes kid’s mind and even mother’s too. If you would like to visit my website, you can find it here- http://www.scrapbooking-101.com/
I love this fairy like atmosphere of water color feeling papers. The softness and the colors of papers match perfectly with outside pictures taken at a park or even backyard. All the materials from “Reflection Scrapbook Collection” are easy to use, and after making 2 layouts, there still plenty of papers and die-cuts are left.
I used acetate die cuts, chipboard sticker, and “Sea Glass” ink sprays- other than that, I cut from pattered papers.
I have taken so many pictures of my daughters and I am happy that I can keep scrapbooking on and on.
With already perfectly coordinated papers and embellishments, I was able to put anything I want without thinking too much. This helped me saving time! Also, I have tried splatter technique using “Jet Black” ink. Just dab “Jet Black” ink onto smooth surface and add water, take the black water to a water color brush and splatter by tapping the brush. This was one of the techniques Tasnim showed us how when she taught the very first class in Japan this summer.
Wow! How amazing were all of Reiko’s projects? We absolutely loved both of them! We hope you enjoyed Reiko’s projects as much as we did. Also make sure to visit Reiko’s Blog to see more and don’t forget to leave her some love.
Thank you so much, Reiko, for being our August Guest Designer and sharing your talents with us today! It was such a lovely treat to gaze at your gorgeous projects.
